We've talked a lot of beer, but I don't recall a bourbon thread.

Post just one bourbon per post, include a picture of the bottle and your opinion.

Just bought a bottle of this tonight because it was calling to me from the shelf :drool: and I'm in absolute love. :bow: Mellow and smooth as anything I've ever drank. Cherry and vanilla flavors with the oak finish. It's awesomeness in a glass (with one ice cube). They get bonus points for mentioning drinking it with one ice cube (how I always take mine) in the little booklet around the neck.

I will give a thumbs up to buffalo trace as well. Toured their facility while working in frankfort, KY about ten years ago. Nice place to visit and they gave a great tour.

Great Stuff! My step dad got me on this stuff. I mostly just drink it while at his house with a cigar.

Been a long time dry for me on the cigar front...My brother-in-law founded La Perla Habana, and my wife used to be VP of sorts...she got to do all the RTDA trade shows, worked the booth with my daughter...and I got lots of free samples. But she no longer works for him, and my supply is long gone, and I decided to give it a break. I used to like the "Black Pearl" Gran and Rojo the best.

Why is it that I like things with my own name in them?
Well, I was hoping for more of a celebration watching the Yankees... but... oh well.

A Yankees fan in NH? Unpossible.

My World Series flow chart:
1. Did the Yankees win?

Yes - sweet.

No - 2. Did the Red Sox win?

No - sweet.

Yes - God %$*# it.

I've only been upset once in my lifetime about the Series. And I thrive on Patriot fan tears, too.

Woodford Reserve is outstanding bourbon! I don't generally drink bourbon, but Woodford Reserve is so smooth, one of my brothers in arms and I drank a bottle on night (yes, the bottle!) a couple days after I returned from my last trip to Iraq. Highly recommended...in moderation (whatever that means to you). ;)

Currently having some Four Roses. OBSK recipe. My favorite spicy bourbon. The complete opposite end of the spectrum from the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked.



About to go get a glass of Bulleit now.

Here is what I have been sampling recently. The Jefferson's Reserve has been going fast. Quite tasty.

I am a big fan of the Jefferson's Reserve and I also have an Elijiah Craig special reserve from the factory only that my in-laws picked up for me. I only take that out on very special occasions as it was going to fast.

I've been so nuts with SEMA prep, attending and now pushing out the Fall/SEMA issue of the magazine that I haven't had any real drinks from the collection in a long while :banghead:

I did, however, score an amazing bottle of Smooth Ambler Old Scout from a very generous forum member and good friend. It's all I have in me not to have killed that bottle already. Possibly the best thing I've had since the same friend let me try some Pappy VanWinkle. :bacon:

Haven't touched it in weeks though :(

Bought this for a family member for Christmas. Made here in Missouri and is amazingly smooth. Yes, it is already half gone!
